Arlanxeo opens new global headquarters in Netherlands

MAASTRICHT, NETHERLANDS: Arlanxeo Holding B V has officially opened its new corporate headquarters in Maastricht, Netherlands. From now on, one of the global leading company for synthetic rubber will control its operations around the world from Netherlands.

Arlanxeo is a 50-50 joint venture between Lanxess AG and Saudi Aramco established on 1 April.

The new group headquarters ‘De Colonel’ in the heart of Maastricht will house central leadership functions as well as the management team.

The Arlanxeo management is drawn evenly from both partner companies. Alongside Jan Paul de Vries as chief executive officer (CEO), Jorge Nogueira also moved from Lanxess to the Arlanxeo management team. Saudi Aramco provided Ali Ba-Baidhan as the chief financial officer (CFO) and Fayez Alsharef as the chief procurement officer (CPO).

“After the launch at the beginning of April, the opening of our headquarters is the next step toward establishing Arlanxeo. In Maastricht, we have found the perfect international location that is also in the immediate vicinity of our company’s key European production sites. It offers outstanding conditions for Arlanxeo to strengthen its position as the key player in the global synthetic rubber market,” said Jan Paul de Vries, chairman of the Arlanxeo executive board.

“I am excited that Arlanxeo has chosen to make Maastricht its base, and would like to extend a warm welcome to all employees. I firmly believe that the employees will find Maastricht to be an attractive, high-quality city to live and work in,” said Annemarie Penn-Te Strake, mayor of the city of Maastricht.
